Fence and Skull

The skull was in a neighbour's paddock. The fence is abandoned in the midst of ploughed mud and leads to what could possibly have been an abandoned homestead. I have already used the fence in the distance, in Gates (2006) and Mud, Gate and Gibbet (2004).

For the skull, I wanted to look through the twisted tangled mess of the wire, supported by that big square red post.

The skull, the posts, the sky and the background are silent things.

**There are more notes on the fence on the Compare Fences Page.
